Plasti-Dip and matte black vinyl decals questions

I'm looking to put some hash mark decals and a couple strips on the hood as well as a rocker strip; as for the plasti-dip, I'm looking to plasti-dip the bottom of the bumper as possibly my rims and mustang symbol in the front of the grill. My questions are that will I still be able to wax over the decals and plasti-dip or is there something to put over them like a clear gloss that will make them wax able, anything helps!

Plasti-Dip and matte black vinyl decals questions

You can wash right over them but do not wax or put any type of glossifier on the plasti. The chemicals makes them stick to your car and hardends over time making it a complete PITA to peel off later. If you just spray and go you can peel off with no worries. FYI : for a clean laser look don't let the tape on the covered areas dry with the plasti or some parts of where your sprayed plasti will peel with the tape and doesn't look professionally done. Peel the tape while the plasti is still wet... Hope this helps and good luck bro

Anywhere you put plasti i highly suggest you don't expose them to it. I live in Houston so the heat and humidity could dry it out and roll up if exposed to chemicals, while maybe in colder climates it would make it morph or bubble in some spots. You can spray plasti on anything, I just wouldn't let any chemicals touch it ...

Vinyl can be waxed. But as Black said, just don't do it on PlastiDip.

For Vinyl make sure it's a carnauba wax or a synthetic that explicitly states it will not discolor plastics. Some cheap sythentics might discolor the vinyl.

I use Klasse, old school synthetic that works like a champ, affordable and easy to work with.

Do not, I repeat, do not wax MATTE stripes.

I do use Meguiars Detail Spray on my matte black stripes without a problem, and have recently gone over them with 303 Aerospace. The 303 Aerospace actually has UV protection, and wiped on and then wiped off leaves a deep, but original looking finish, no gloss or white haze.
